tattoos are dirty, scruffy, low class, degenerate, cringe, dumb, tacky, immoral. BYE!!!!
>>
>>399206
great
(total sarcasm implied)
>>
>>399206
your whipshading is real solid, really like the ink stroke style on those chaos stars too.
how many of these are your own designs?

(this thread should probably be moved to /ic desu)
>>
>>399210
is earning $400+ a day utilising specialist skills low class and immoral?
>>
>>399331
Same could be said about a whore or a professional criminal
>>
>>399332
whoring doesnt require special skillset.
as for criminal, do you have any idea how much legal red tape you have to go through to be allowed to tattoo or run a studio?

sounds like you're jealous of people who make decent money doing art they enjoy.
If you still think tattoos are only for scumbags you need to wake up, its a thriving creative industry with every stylistic and demographic niche you can think of plus the skys the limit on what you can charge if you're good.

save your hate for people who work on furry coomission - now that degenerate.
>>
>>399385
Listen m8 it's fine if you want to make a living doing degenerate things and putting degenerate markings on people, you don't need to convince everyone that what you're doing is good because it's not.

I imagine there's likely a party lifestyle that comes attached to this line of work?

>you don't need to convince everyone that what you're doing is good because it's not

can you define what you mean by 'not good'?

besides Im not OP, hell I'm not even a tattoo artist but my partner and a fair few of my friends are and I know they show more passion and dedication to their profession than almost anyone else I know doing creative stuff.

pic related: 'not good work' apparently guys, you should all stick to doing wordpress layouts and how dare you have fun being a creative professional

You seem to be taking it very personally that people think your brand of art/lifestyle is degenerate. Just because something is artistic does not mean it is not degenerate, and just because art is good does not mean it's in bad form.
>>
>>399397
that's 'not good' because its going to look like smudgy trash in 5 years. there are plenty of new age tattooers out there today that are doing just incredible things but its all this super busy hyper realistic stylized bull whos visual appeal will only last as long as the trend it is copying. look at all the bitches who hopped on the watercolor tattoo meme a couple years ago. theyre not posting their shit anymore since all the ink started to fade and it just looks like theyve got skin irritation now.

>same thing is going to happen to everyone with face tats too. gon b pretty funny
>>
yeah, the art itself is sometimes very impressive, and the type of person who has the tattoo greatly influences whether or not it comes across as tacky or cringe. most people have painfully mediocre art tattooed to themselves though, and the fact that it's glorified graffiti etched permanently into their skin to me shows they are at least partially immature and egotistical do something so superficial, to their body which is irreparable and WILL look shit in the years to come

>>399386
I dont understand this, if the client wishes to do this, what is the problem with someone providing it? Are gun manufacturers immoral?
>>
>>399405
-thinking- its degenerate is fine, its art, you can have your boomer opinions if you want.


but trying to push that its somehow objectively the wrong thing to do is just misguided - let people enjoy what they enjoy
>>
>>399456
>Are gun manufacturers immoral?
No, because guns are a useful tool for self defense. What are tattoos a useful tool for besides showing off to other degenerates?
>>399458
It's my opinion that what you're trying to push is objectively the wrong to do. You can enjoy what you want, we're just two people on 4chan. My opinion is you're degenerate and are better than that
>>
>>399474
you still havent said why tattoos are somehow the wrong life path for people both getting and giving them.

what work do you do that's somehow so morally superior?
>>
Prove that you're the artist. I wanna see a cholo with a full Bugs Bunny and Taz wearing backwards caps and JNCOs leg tat. Stat.
>>
>>399474
What are paintings useful for besides showing off for other degenerates that spend their time learning an useless skill?


what are music good for besides showing off to other denerates that invest their time in music theory?

wh- you get my point.
>>
>>399534
>all art is the same as degenerate permanent facepainting
Wow, you got me. I remember such famous tattoo artists throughout history like..........................
Hmm......
Like...................
>>
>>399487
>what work do you do that's somehow so morally superior?
I'm just a machinist, I'm not trying to claim my work is morally superior to the average but it is morally superior to work that is nothing but pushing degeneracy
>>
>>399474
Never-gf peoples like you are defenerates
>>
>>399748
>defenerates
This is your brain on ink
>>
Tattoos are degenerate, imagine being proud of this shit lmao
>>
>>399789
Sorry kinda mean honestly
>>
most gd a third class artists.

Ofc they get salty at everyone who isnt gd.

Ofc thats not always true cause cause one of the best artists i know personal is also gd.

But sadly overall they arent that good compared to other disciplines.
>>
>>399456
i bet you're the kind of fag who'd chop off some cunts dick just because he paid you to even if you knew how badly it would fuck them up. i hope you burn in hell.
